I am used to using the term “DEI” to describe the kinds of work I do now in facilitating teams and helping them implement inclusion into their teams. This stands for diversity, equity and inclusion for those of you not into the alphabet soup of this field.
Recently I discovered a new term that I absolutely LOVE because it incorporates justice into the mix!
JEDI: justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.
I realize this is not going to go over well with corporations. Justice has never been a strong suit of that particular area of the economy. For for small and medium sized businesses or nonprofits I believe it works well. So from now and until a better term floats into public purview I am embracing the “JEDI practitioner” moniker…
Oh hell yeah…
P.S. Thank you, Princess Leia, for always showing us how it is done.
